|I am one of you - a morgellons sufferer.|
I started on Mel's protocol in January last year, with the Morgellons Support Kit. Five months later, in June, I added MMS to what I was taking. I took this, as Mel had done, at bedtime. In this way MMS does not interfere with C vitamin, other vitamins and antioxidants, that I take ( e.g. Thymic Formula).
I have noticed that the symptoms become worse with the full moon. Mel gave me good advice on how to alleviate this problem. He suggested that, for 3-4 days before a full moon, and for 3-4 days after a full moon, to divide the amount of MMS drops (that I would normally take at bedtime), between the morning hours (around 10 - 11am), and bedtime. The morning dose worked out to be at the least 2 hours after I had my breakfast and vitamins, and at the least 2 hours before lunch time (when I take my vitamins again). When the moon is full it causes changes in the activity of these pathogens. It seems to speed up their reproduction activities and more toxins are released into the bloodstream. This effect causes morgellons sufferers to feel like their healing is going backwards. It is going slightly backwards, as the full moon approaches, but, as we continue the protocol and healing regime, we will still continue going forward and making progress. We are going 3 steps forward and 1 step backwards. Basically we are going forward slowly.
I would advise all of you, who are going to start Mel's Protocol, to please put down on paper, all the symptoms that you are experiencing, including 'brain fog' and your energy levels. It will help you later on, when your spirit becomes low, and you think that you will never be healed. This will allow you to compare your current symptoms and energy levels, with what you were experiencing at the beginning of the protocol. Trust me, you will see a big difference and it will help you to carry on with the protocol.
At this moment my health is quite good. I realised that I have had morgellons in its very early stage. Perhaps this is the reason why I hardly have had any sore. I am able to say that I am over 90% free of symptoms.
I tried Far Infrared. It is good, but I have been losing weight constantly - I have lost 14 kg (30.8 lb) altogether, which has not been good for me. I have known for a long time that my stomach acid is very low. Since I began the morgellons protocol, this has become critical. Even though I was taking digestion supplements with every meal, it did not help. My GP got my blood, urine and stool samples checked by pathology, but it was all reported as normal, and she was unable to advise me on what to do. So, I began to do my own research and, have recently, begun a regime to alleviate the weight loss. I am juicing vegetables (parsley, coriander, celery, beetroot, carrots) and fruit, to provide good nutrition to my digestive tract and the bloodstream. It is so healthy and good for our immune system and general health, and I like it. At the same time I am eating cooked food as before, and supplementing (Betaine Hydrochloride 650 mg, Pepsin 31 mg and Gentian 20 mg) at lunch and dinner time. In the mornings I take, with my breakfast, Logos Essential Digestion, as I was doing before. I need to ask John B for advice on this issue, and will let you know the results in a few months.
I do not consume any sugar, but I do eat all fruit, except bananas. Since I lost a lot of weight, I decided to eat 2 bananas per day and had noticed that my symptoms were worse than before. Gina, from Mel's web (Forum), also had the same experience. It would be very good to have in vitro testing to look for a banana/morgellons link. I limit my dairy intake. I only drink milk in the morning, to whiten my coffee, and very little cheese (no other dairy products).
I want to share my experience of problems with my joints, with other morgellons sufferers who have had similar problems. I had a problem with my hip for about 6-8 months. It was so painful that I started to limp. I saw my GP and she advised me to get an x-ray. The x-ray did not show any problems with my hip. I then asked if I could have ultrasound (one way) therapy. This worked to stop the pain and problem with my hip. After 4 -5 sessions, my problem was completely solved. A few months later I developed a similar problem with both wrists - again this was fixed with ultrasound. My hip and wrists have been fine since.
Before I started the protocol, my body temperature (BT) was so low, as is the case with most morgellons sufferers. An average BT is between 97.8F (36.6C) and 98.2F (36.8C). If BT is below 97.6 F (36.4C), it is considered a diagnosis of an under-functioning thyroid or insufficient thyroid hormone replacement. As morgellons sufferers have a lot of toxins in their blood, a thyroid condition usually exists, and this is reason that the BT is so low. I use a liquid-filled thermometer (which can be filled by mercury or alcohol) under armpit for 10 min. These thermometers are more accurate than the digital ones, and accuracy is very important, in regard to this. After a few months on the protocol, I had rid my body of a lot of pathogens and my body temperature became normal. Remember, a normal body temperature is a good sign that our body is healing. The other good sign is when cuts are healing in a normal manner.
Currently I have just a few of the symptoms, in a very mild form. if I didn't know what my condition was at the beginning, I would think that I do not have morgellons. However, I know that, as long as my cuts are not healing in a normal way (it is still in a shape of a crater), that morgellons is still present. Once my cuts heal in a normal way and my body temperature is normal, I will know I am cured, I do not have morgellons any more.
I know for all of you, if you can be patient enough and persistent enough, with your treatment, your health will improve and you will finally be cured of morgellons. The healing process is slow, however. There is no 'silver bullet', but, at the end of the day, our protocol becomes a golden bullet.
God bless you and help you to have a strength to carry on.
With love for all of you,
I think it is a good idea to start a new topic - to focus on those of us who have successfully cured over 90% of their symptoms. This will inspire and give hope to others, particularly those who are only discovering morgellons and those who are at the beginning of their healing process.
I am starting, therefore, a new topic, 'Cured over 90%'. It would be good if ONLY the Morgellons sufferers, who are more than 90% free of symptoms, post their experiences under this topic. In this way, we will have in one place only, the experiences of sufferers who have been on the protocol for a long period of the time, and who are hopefully, approaching the end of the tunnel.
In order to read these experiences in an easy manner (without being overloaded with all possible questions), I am creating a new topic called 'Questions to sufferers who have cured 90%'. So, if anyone wants to ask questions to the person who made a post on 'Cured over 90%', or wants to make a comment on that post, it can be done within this topic. This will keep information given in 'Cured over 90%' clear, concise and direct.
The 'Testimonials' section of this site offers plenty of good posts, but is a lot of information to wade through. When time comes, that I can say 'I cured morgellons' , I will post it on the 'Testimonials'!
Please give your feedback on my suggestions to Mel.
